Chapter 1. Organo-Metal Lead Halide Perovskite Properties

Abstract
The inorganic perovskite compounds were discovered in 1839 and named after the Russian mineralogist L.A. Perovski, who first characterized the structure of perovskite compounds with general crystalline formula of ABX3.

Chapter 2. The Evolution of Perovskite Solar Cells Structures

Abstract
Organo-metal lead halide perovskite was first used in solar cells in 2009 by Kojima et al. (J Am Chem Soc 131:6050–6051, 2009) CH3NH3PbX3 (X = Br, I) was applied as a sensitizer in a Dye Sensitized Solar Cell (DSSC) with liquid electrolyte.

Chapter 3. Hole Transport Material (HTM) Free Perovskite Solar Cell

Abstract
At the same time of the perovskite discovery to function as efficient light harvester in the solar cell, Etgar et al. [1] first proposed a heterojunction device structure of FTO/TiO2/CH3NH3PbI3/Au in which CH3NH3PbI3 was used as a p-type semiconductor and 500 nm mesoscopic TiO2 was used as an n-type semiconductor.

Chapter 4. Parameters Influencing the Deposition of Methylammonium Lead Halide Iodide in Hole Conductor Free Perovskite-Based Solar Cells

Abstract
Several deposition techniques are used for perovskite-based solar cells, including vapor deposition, vapor assisted solution process (VASP), and solution processed via one-step and two-step deposition. The effect of the perovskite deposition on the solar cells performance is critically important; it determines the film coverage, film thickness, film quality, and the transport properties. Graetzel and coworkers have demonstrated the use of the two-step deposition technique as a powerful technique for achieving highly efficient perovskite solar cells. The two-step deposition enables better control over the perovskite crystallization by separating the perovskite deposition into two precursors.

Chapter 5. Tuning the Optical Properties of Perovskite in HTM Free Solar Cells

Abstract
As discussed in the introduction of this book, the optical properties of OMHP could be changed by chemical modifications, in the halide site (X-site) or in the cation site (A-site), see Fig. 1.​1. This chapter discusses both options and their function in HTM-free OMHP solar cell.

Chapter 6. High Voltage in Hole Conductor Free Organo Metal Halide Perovskite Solar Cells

Abstract
One of the attractive properties of organo metal halide perovskite is its ability to gain high open-circuit voltage (V oc) with a high ratio of qV oc/E g. Several works demonstrate high V oc in perovskite-based solar cells which have hole transport material layer (HTM).

Chapter 7. Self-assembly of Perovskite for Fabrication of Semi-transparent Perovskite Solar Cells

Abstract
The last topic discussed in this book is related to the possibility and to the idea of forming semi-transparent perovskite solar cells using self-assembled process which enables the control over the solar cell transparency.
